Festa di San Giuseppe.


Oh St. Joseph, whose protection is so great, so strong, so prompt before the throne of God, I place in you all my interest and desires. Oh St. Joseph, do asssist me by your powerful intercession, and obtain for me from your divine Son all spiritual blessings, through Jesus Christ, our Lord. So that, having engaged here below your heavenly power, I may offer my thanksgiving and homage to the most loving of Fathers. Oh St. Joseph, I never weary contemplating you, and Jesus asleep in your arms; I dare not approach while He reposes near your heart. Press Him in my name and kiss His fine head for me, and ask him to return the Kiss when I draw my dying breath. St. Joseph, Patron of departing souls, pray for me.

-Ancient Prayer to St Joseph


Today is my name saint day. I always remember it because it's one of the major ones they celebrate and my parents always buy me a bunch of stuff and i get all sorts of hugs and kisses and pastries.. hehe

I love how my star sign is the sign of the Virgin Mary and my name is the name of the father. How the hell did that pan out? I guess I'm just that saintly... ; )) hehe

Anyhoo.. so, today is my day (and the pope's day too!hehe) and a million other people under the name of Giuseppe.. so, go celebrate it and eat some Zeppole!!
